See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Barge Inn re-opened under new management on 24th May 2019, after having been closed for six months. The approach to the pub might be considered uninspiring, going down a track through a wood yard then past some cottages on the right before you get to the actual pub at the end. The Kennet and Avon Canal runs right along side it and the campsite is behind. The pub is at the centre of the crop circle region of Wiltshire and has an alien theme. The rear room has an impressive painted ceiling on the subject. There is music every Saturday and most Fridays. Planning permission has been applied for to convert the attached barn into 4 letting rooms upstairs with a function room below which would be suitable for weddings parties and other entertainment. There will also be letting rooms in the main building and a one bed apartment in the attic.
